Ohio University's 100 Level English Program: A Balanced, Experimental Structure That Satisfies Almost Everyone.
Huntley, Reid
A description of the 100 level English program at Ohio University, an explanation of how the program got started, and a brief evaluation of how the students and faculty responded to the program are included in this paper. Acknowledging that the students come into the program with 12 years or more of study of English composition and literature, the program offers the student a selection of seven basic courses, all designed by a departmental committee: literature of initiation, focusing on the theme of innocence-to-experience; black literature; urban experiences in literature; images of man and woman in literature; literature of vision and fantasy; literature on alienation; and contemporary writing skills. Also available to the faculty are two categories for self-designed courses--literary topics or contemporary issues. The courses are open to both freshmen and sophomores. Having stemmed from the desire to move away from the traditional "freshman composition" approach, the program has gone through some minor changes as a result of evaluations. Both the faculty and students are pleased with the outcome. (HOD)
